the lamancha doe is very gentle with ginny, and ginny actually seems to enjoy the attention. she appears to be a very gentle giant and even against the other lamancha does her threats seem pathetically gentle. and yes we do want a buck, I don't know that as beginners we need a $600 buck to start. your worst quality buck is 100 times better than the barnyard mutts we have around here so something on the cheaper side will work for us. what do you have available? you website gave me the impression all bucks were sold.
well a 6 yr old Lamancha has apparently taking a likin to Ginny, she follows her around pushing her across the stall with her head, then she will stick her head under Ginnys backend and lift her in the air. Not sure what any of that means but Ginny just stands there patiently and takes it. everyone is still doing good and Ginnys diarrhea appears to have gotten better. we have plenty of room at this farm for a buck and will be seriously looking to purchase one soon, not sure if you have any available or not but, will probably be calling soon.
oh my god! Gertrude never shuts up! typical female......anyway thought I would let you know the girls are fitting in just fine, they get to meet the lamanchas today. Ginny has a little bit of diarrhea. we gave her probios yesterday so we will see what happens. while neither will take treats from us yet, Ginny is much more skittish than Gertrude so it makes sense to us that she would be the one with diarrhea. we don't think its anything to worry about yet.
Hey Deborah, I'd think your opinion on this, a member needs to find a home for her two withers. Do you think it would be a problem if I took them in, right now I have 4 , I was just concerned about them all being together . Can you help?
Hi Deborah I am so sorry!! I hardly ever use that gmail account anymore and I haven't seen any of this until just now.
Thank you for letting me know about Lizzie's buck- I am regretfully going to have to pass on him though. I really had my heart set on the Charlotte buck...I hope I didn't hold you up in advertising him. I will just forfeit my deposit in case there was any inconvenience in my slow reply. thanks so much for letting me know.
I just had an ah-ha moment. Having trouble tattooing my dark eared goats. So I bought some light green ink and thought all would be well.
I re-tattooed a black doe 3 weeks ago for a show and decided to check and see how the tattoo was looking. Well the right side I did with my gray numerals and the left with my white numerals. A few years ago I bought the white set because I was missing a few letters.
Well there was no color on the right side, just the scar. The left side retained the color. I noticed that my white numerals have thicker needles, thus putting more ink in the ear.
Maybe too late to put in your book but I wish I knew that before!!
Hi Deborah - our kids are all due in April. Each of our does came in heat one week apart so that will be an interesting month. We were lucky - every Saturday in November we visisted a differant local farm where we had lined up a stud so they all will have differant sires. It just so happens that all of the sires were white (what are those odds) so all of the colors may be a surprise.
Sorry Deborah, haven't been checking my email lately. Just found the email about the book quote. Of course, I would't mind dear. In fact, I am very honored. Just remember, I am no grammar whiz, just a redneck, so make sure it's all RIGHT ok! Any time!
